Stupid criminals

This has probably already been done before but I couldn't resist. I had to share this.

'I just ransacked this campsite and my name is Peter Addison'

Agence France-Presse
Published: Friday, September 07, 2007

A bungling burglar left police a clue to his identity, scrawling graffiti that revealed his name on a wall after ransacking a campsite in northwest England. "Peter Addison was here!" wrote the 18-year-old in black marker after the drunken break-in with an accomplice in August in which they smashed dishes and let off fire extinguishers. He also daubed his gang's name on the wall, "The Adlington Massiv!", and added "R Gay." Detectives traced him on their computers. "This crime is up there with the dumbest of all in the criminal league table," said Inspector Gareth Woods after Addison and an 18-year-old accomplice pled guilty. "There are some pretty stupid criminals around but to leave your own name at the scene of the crime takes the biscuit."

That's too dumb to even comprehend. Feel free to share some stupid criminal stories you may have heard or read about. I love this stuff!

Just as stupid as dropping your wallet at the scene of the crime ... but not quite as dumb as the bank robber who used his own personal deposit slip for the Robbery Note...!

we had a guy break into our house last year, and after some persuasion agreed to trot back up the road to the house he was staying at, to retrieve a work laptop my husband desperately didn't want to lose - which thus gave us time to call the police and have him arrested.
